Christchurch earthquake anniversary and Banbury's WW1 Canary Babies

Phil Gayle and friends bring you Oxfordshire's brightest breakfast show. Phil Mercer reports from New Zealand on the 3rd anniversary of the Christchurch earthquake and hears from the family of a woman who died, and how the city is rebuilding itself. Plus, we start our WW1 at Home series with remarkable stories from Oxfordshire. Today we discover the Canary Babies, the tale of munitions factory workers in Banbury who turned yellow as a result of the chemicals they were working with, with some of the women even giving birth to yellow babies!
